Killiecrankie Visitor Centre (NTS)

Beautiful wooded gorge near the site of the Battle of Killiecrankie, 1689. Visitor centre with delightful walks.

On 27 July 1689, the Pass of Killiecrankie echoed with the sound of battle cries and gunfire when, nearby, a Jacobite army led by 'Bonnie Dundee' defeated the government forces under General Hugh Mackay. One soldier evaded capture by making a spectacular jump across the River Garry at Soldier's Leap. The wooded gorge, much admired by Queen Victoria in 1844, is tranquil now, and is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its fine oak and mixed deciduous woodland. The visitor centre exhibition features the battle, natural history and ranger services. In the centre, visitors can now watch birds nesting, via a remote camera in the woodlands. Snack bar and shop, ranger service and programme of guided walks in summer. Image Credit ©  National Trust - Killiekrankie Visitor Centre.
